07.10.2014 - Technical view on commodity futures

The price of gold could not reach the level of 1180 and started to correct upwards. Within the correction, prices reached a strong level of 1210, but were unable to break through it. To continue the upward movement the price needs to break through the inclined resistance line and to gain a foothold above 1220. We expect price decline in the near future, but keep a positive outlook for the medium-term and recommend to accumulate long positions in gold.

Nearest resistance levels: 1210, 1230, 1240, 1244, 1252, 1265, 1278, 1290, 1300

Nearest support levels: 1200, 1180
